Cpl. Allgire and K9 Loki

Cpl. Brian Allgire is a 2010 Licking High School graduate. He attended the University of Missouri – Columbia police academy (LETI) in 2012 and accepted a full-time position with the Licking Police Department in 2013. Allgire was the department’s original K9 officer when the program began in 2013 and will again assume that position.
  “Cpl. Allgire is extremely pro-active and knowledgeable with drug and alcohol related investigations. He is currently training with K9 Loki to take over the K9 Unit and become the department's K9 handler once again,” states Chief Burton.

Cpl. Daniel Mobley


 Cpl. Daniel Mobley is also a Licking High School alumnus, having graduated in 2006. Mobley attended the 89th Missouri State Highway Patrol class and graduated in July 2009. After graduation he was stationed in Troop B (Macon area) with the MSHP until his resignation to move back to the Licking area in 2012. At that time, Mobley became a reserve and part-time officer for the Licking Police Department until accepting a full-time position in 2015.
    “Cpl. Mobley possesses strong investigative skills and will lead the majority of the major crime investigations within the city,” says Chief Burton.
  The department has also acquired new uniforms that will promote the officers’ safety and comfort. The layered uniforms will help with weight distribution of the equipment they wear in the line of duty, as well as ventilation and flexibility while in uniform. They also introduced a new insignia for the Licking Police Department.
  There has not been a new uniform style in over 20 years. The change brings a more modernized law enforcement look and helps distinguish the Licking Police from other law enforcement in the area.
 “I am proud of the department we have and we look forward to growing with our community." ~ Chief Pat Burton
